Frankenapple coming soon

Thursday, April 18, 2013

Buying organic will help temporarily but we need to start addressing the issue of GMO's that are not tested. People who can't afford organic will pay the price as will the environment (and all of us in the long run).

    This makes me sick. Thanks for sharing; I am glad I know this now.

Dear Monsanto,
You are not God, so stop it.

Those of us interested in our health, not your bottom line

    a pet peeve of mine over 20 years ago- now it is a tragic reality - permeates everything from tomato/potato to peanuts and peas.
i would be freaking to feed a young family these days - a child with any kind of allergy may eat a food with the gene instilled of that food.
i talked of frankenfoods many times - now the shelves are more stocked with them than real foods.
it is a travesty perpetrated on all of us.

    It's easy to keep apples from browning naturally - with lemon juice. I do this all the time when I make fruit salads with apples.

It's easy to avoid the GMOs since I don't eat grains anymore, but this is getting scary if they start tampering with produce in the same way.

    The most disturbing thing is that they would risk dire consequences for a cosmetic feature that no one much even cares about.
